Blue Devils get their legs back
by Paul Kennedy, October 21st, 2011 3:12AM



[WAKE FOREST-DUKE] Sophomore Laura Weinberg scored two second-half goals as No. 8 Duke defeated No. 4 Wake Forest, 2-0, before 2,117 fans on Thursday evening at Spry Soccer Stadium in Winston-Salem, N.C.

Duke improved to 6-1-1 in the ACC, where it shares the lead with North Carolina and Virginia.  The six conference wins matches a Blue Devil school record.

"It was a huge relief," said Duke head coach Robbie Church about Weinberg's first goal. "But we played so well and we deserved the game. Wake Forest is great team -- no question about it. We were really prepared and had a disappointing loss at Carolina the other day. We took a couple of days off, got some fresh legs and worked really hard in training. They were really focused -- you could see our warm-up was really sharp, really crisp."

With the shutout, Duke junior goalkeeper Tara Campbell continues to increase her school record to 11 on the year.
